Looks cool. Stop by next time you see me out. I've seen you a few times now, or rather heard you

How are the brakes holding up Alex?
The brakes are alright, if you really want to stop they will but you can hear that you have drilled and slotted rotors, not squeaky just kinda make a grumbling sound, but normal day to day driving they are pristine!! Prolly not the best rotors you can get but they are great for the money and the zinc coating is still nice and shiny

I love the new sedans wish more people would mod them. This just proves they have GREAT potential
This has to go in every Mk3 sedan owner's sig.

Also what rotors did you buy? I usually get that Powerstop Brake kit. I need to do my front brakes already and I bought some Centric rotors that already have the hats powder coated. Problem is they came solid, not vented. Everything online says to just run them

I'm still going to use them, but not sure how well they'll work so I may need a replacement soon. They were only like $33

I have bright blue metallic wheels for winter. We should look good together in town. And if I get in trouble, I'll just say it was the other focus with blue wheels.Lol

And for my brakes, I used brake motive they were on eBay wanna say $200 for all four. But I'm thinking of getting some new ones, and ill ask my buddy if he wants to paint your stuff, he's done all my stuff

That rotor looks like a rear, the fronts are vented and thicker.

These are indeed for the fronts though. My rears are drums. I guess they stopped doing solid rotors in the front in the late 90's, but they supposedly work the same as vented when not racing. I suppose I'll find out. I obviously didn't know these were solid when I bought them. I coops return them, but I'm stubborn lol
